EXCLUSIVE Fans of E. L. James have been clamoring for news of her next books. The author of the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy apparently is not just buying new ties with her excessive amount of royalties. She’s been able to focus just on writing– and working on her new projects.
Sources say James will likely offer new adventures of the “Fifty Shades” characters eventually but not night right away. First up is a new novel with new characters, not Christian Grey or Anastasia Steele, the rambunctious lovers from the trilogy. “She really wants to try something with new people, but still a romance,” says a source. “And of course there will be some bondage.” Of course!
That novel, still being written, won’t be out before 2016. “She has to finish it,” I’m told.
As for “Fifty Shades,” the saga isn’t over. I’m told a fourth chapter isn’t ruled out. And then there’s a prequel cooking on a backburner. “Everyone wants to hear more about Christian Grey’s early years,” my source says.
And next up is the movie, on February 13, 2015, certain to be an event.
